Hilda Solis, U.S. Secretary of Labor, will keynote “The Workforce Mosaic,” National Journal’s next policy summit to be held at the Newseum on July 12, 2011 in Washington, D.C.
America’s workforce is currently being shaped by three converging trends: rapid growth in the non-white population, baby boomers who are staying in the workforce longer, and veterans returning from the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. As employers face unique challenges with recruitment, hiring and retention of a highly and technically skilled workforce, understanding this mosaic becomes more important than ever.
NJ Editorial Director Ronald Brownstein will moderate a panel to explore policy solutions to help strengthen the U.S. workforce as its composition evolves. Details to attend are in the media advisory.
